But they sure are the bomb.

Here is what I am using. I considered the Festool but this was only 3 bills and it has a hammer drill setting.

I just picked it up last night on my way home so I will have to get back to you on it. My previous drill is a yellow 14.4 xrp I have had it for a long time and bought new batteries for it last year but the funny thing is I could of bought a new drill almost for the price of the batteries just not the xrp. Then I dropped it awhile back off a couple stories and it still works perfectly but has a gap in between the trigger and the chuck you can see it in the pic.

I have been using Dewalt for the same reason I have the radio but I think
I would have to buy the new yellow radio to work off these batteries. Other than that the batteries are pretty light but the drill has the weight. It is not as heavy as my old one and way better.
